Critic Reviews for Birds Without Names

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (5)

  • Birds Without Names is littered with belligerent relationships, beautiful scoundrels and bad sex. What makes the film stand out from the crowd, however, is actress Yu Aoi's against-type performance.

  • Although ailed by the common faults of recent Japanese movies (including a somewhat far-fetched script), "Birds Without Names" includes more than enough elements to erase any negative aspects

    December 1, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Birds Without Names is a great piece of work from director Kazuya Shiraishi, that not only succeeds as a great romantic drama but as an actors showcase for all involved, especially Yu Aoi, who gives her best performance yet.

    November 1, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The film presents a boldly nihilistic world view without anyone to root for, yet it does so with impressive craft and commitment.

    June 10, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Aoi is impressive as the poisonous Towako but it's Abe who pulls the story along with his small frame and dog-like abjection. The content may be objectionable, but the performances are strong.

Audience Reviews for Birds Without Names

  • Nov 05, 2017
    Heroine is not especially likeable as she goes through life making people as miserable as she is and falling for unsuitable men despite having a loyal, if uncouth, boyfriend. I saw this as part of the Japanese film festival and very much enjoyed it.
